I have not, but looking online it has the same OLED resolution 2.36m-Dot as the 
a6600 and a7iii. Since I have e-mount lenses, seems it would make more sense to 
go with a6600. The a7riii has 3.69m-dot OLED. I would have a hard time 
justifying even the a6600. Just not small enough.

I'm struggling still with OLED's. The image as viewed is very flat. I can see 
what I'm looking at, but I still struggle with it. Focus peaking, focus 
magnification, ... I miss the optical viewfinder with micro-prism on the screen.

Comparing some sizes 

I have been eyeing the Lumix DMC-LX100 ii u4/3 for a small camera. Only F4 
minimum aperture though. Curious if any one has any experience with it. Perhaps 
OT, since there is no painful lens choice to be made.

Actually, I was thinking my next camera should be a drone. Seems that would be 
good up in Alaska as well, but it doesn't take OM glass. Maybe get one before 
the tariffs kick in on new supply.
